If you want to wake up your skin, restore your youth, or correct some of your most problematic and bothersome skin imperfections, a chemical peel is a perfect solution. At Adoro Medical Spa in Severna Park, MD, we offer several different professional-grade chemical peels that you can add to your skincare routine to achieve your best skin yet.
How Often Should You Get Chemical Peels?
Once you experience a chemical peel, you will want to make it a part of your regular skincare routine. One of the benefits of chemical peels is that they can be scheduled monthly. There are different strength peels that can combat various skin concerns. If you choose a light or medium strength chemical peel to treat your skin, you typically can schedule it bi-monthly or monthly to help perfect your skin and build on your treatment results.
Scheduling Deeper Peels
Stronger, deeper peels should only be scheduled as needed since they are designed to treat the more advanced signs of aging and shouldn’t be part of a monthly skincare routine. One of the best ways to determine what type of treatment plan is right for you is by scheduling a consultation.
During this consultation, we can evaluate your skin and determine the right chemical peel for your needs. Then, we can schedule your treatments accordingly so that you know how often you should get these peels to achieve all of your skincare goals.
At Adoro Medical Spa in Severna Park, MD, we offer two professional-grade chemical peel brands, GLYTONE and the VI Peel.

Your results will improve with every treatment you schedule.

One of the many benefits of a GLYTONE peels is that they are completely customizable.

What Can I Expect From the Treatment Process?
When you undergo a GLYTONE peel, you can expect the entire treatment process to take approximately 20 minutes to complete. The total amount of time you spend in our office will depend on the peel we perform and the needs of your skin. We can also add-on treatments, which will add extra time to your appointment.
The entire treatment process is relaxing. All you have to do is lay back and rest as your esthetician applies the peel to your skin and waits the recommended amount of time before removing it and revealing your younger layer of skin.
Once your treatment is complete, you can expect your skin to feel tight, and you may or not experience peeling. Whether or not you peel depends on your skin and the peel we apply during the treatment session. Once we choose the right GLYTONE peel for your skin, we can give you a better idea of what type of post-treatment results you can expect.
You won’t have to plan around any downtime post-treatment, but you will need to take care of your skin to ensure that you achieve the best results. We typically ask patients to avoid excess sun exposure and protect the treated area from the sun’s harmful rays. You can do this by wearing high-quality sunscreen regardless of the forecast, as well as a hat, sunglasses, and protective clothing.
Additionally, you should avoid touching the treatment areas so that you don’t cause any adverse reactions. We also advise that patients stop using their retinol creams or any other potent anti-aging topical solutions post-treatment while their skin is healing. You can resume your normal daily activities post-treatment, but you should wait approximately two hours before getting the treatment area wet.
Following Your Esthetician’s Instructions
You should use gentle skincare products, and if you have any questions about which products to use or avoid, our esthetician will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your skin post-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which Peel Is Right for Me?
Both GLYTONE and the VI Peels provide us with an effective way to target many different skin types, conditions, and concerns. We are proud to offer both of these effective chemical peels because they deliver results.
Since different patients have various skin concerns and skin types, it’s important that we evaluate your skin in person before choosing the right peel to use during the treatment process. Our expert estheticians understand how each of these brands’ peels works and can look at your skin, evaluate its condition, listen to your goals, and then choose the best peel to help you reach those goals as quickly as possible.
Can I Combine Treatments?
Your chemical peel can be combined with other skincare treatments; it depends on the treatment, but we can perform multiple treatments during one session. When you schedule your initial consultation, one of our estheticians will discuss all of your skincare goals and create a comprehensive skincare treatment plan so that you can achieve beautiful skin.
Can Chemical Peels Improve My Wrinkles?
Many different factors contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles on the face, the most common being the aging process. However, in order to soften these lines and reverse the aging process, you need to invest in your skin. Adding a chemical peel to your routine is the perfect way to do just that. Chemical peels can soften lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin and promoting increased cellular regeneration.
When you remove that dead layer of skin cells and expose a younger layer, you’ll watch your fine lines and wrinkles fade, and your skin will look more youthful, especially when you schedule regular treatments.
